Unity Game Development Platforms
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 7, 2013
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Throttle™ Games, maker
of the Atlas wireless game controller, the Arena console app and publisher of
mobile games, is gaining momentum in the video game developer community with
the availability of its software plug-in on the Marmalade, Corona SDK and
Unity developer platforms in late February. These new integrations make Green
Throttle's unique mobile console, or "monsole" experience available to all
developers already using the platforms.
"By integrating our SDK and building in support for Green Throttle's
controllers, developers now have the opportunity to breathe new life into
their existing games with the introduction of Atlas controllers," said Stacey
Hirata, Head of Publishing and Developer Relations for Green Throttle Games.
"In addition, developers have the ability to break through the clutter with
the spotlight of the Arena app and the improved app discovery. New innovative
games can be built from the ground up to fully enable multiple controllers and
the 10' experience."
Green Throttle blends the "lean back" multiplayer experience of a console game
with the convenience and low cost of a mobile device to deliver unique gaming
experiences. The benefits of developing games for Green Throttle include:
oKeep the earnings: Green Throttle doesn't take a cut of revenue generated
by game sales and monetization.
oEnhance app discovery: Through Green Throttle's Arena app, games
supporting the Atlas controller will be accessible from a single
marketplace that is easy to use and find.
oFree the imagination: By connecting to the TV and supporting our Bluetooth
SPP controllers developers are now able to move beyond mobile or
traditional console features to combine the best of both worlds.
"Marmalade is all about taking games to new platforms and screens, and so
Green Throttle is a natural partner for us," said Tim Closs, Chief Technology
Officer at Marmalade. "We're looking forward to seeing more games like
Expendable Rearmed, which has leveraged Marmalade to come to the Android
platform and is now making use of Green Throttle to enable a console-like
multiplayer experience over mobile."
Since the availability of the Green Throttle SDK in November, more than 500
developers have begun testing the controller and evaluating ways to build
games that support it. By aligning with Corona, Marmalade and Unity, Green
Throttle gains access to more than 50,000 game developers around the world,
including Retrobomb and Shiny Box.
"We're thrilled to partner with Green Throttle and offer Corona SDK developers
the ability to build innovative new games," says Walter Luh, CEO of Corona
Labs. "The industry continues to evolve very rapidly and Green Throttle is at
the forefront of bringing console-like experiences to mobile.
